A loan of $250 helped to finish her cosmetology program.

Katherin Yulieth's story

This is Katherin, 22. She has a daughter named Juliana, 5, who is her life. She has been with her husband, Sergio, for six years. She lives with her mother-in-law, who's a big help and has given her a hand.

She studied a lot as a first-aid technician in the Red Cross. She finished high school with a lot of effort when she was 18, because she had her daughter when she was 17. She has worked since she was young to pay for school, so she knows what it is to take money out of your pocket to pay for the things you want. This is why she learned to appreciate things.

She has worked at everything: as a babysitter, in gardens, as a pre-school assistant, brushing hair in the home, selling shoes and clothing, in restaurants. All this has helped her get experience and know what it is to work.

She wants to finish her program to be able to give her daughter a better quality of life and have her own spa, be her own boss, and do what she likes, although she works in a company that has nothing do do with this. She likes it because thanks to this job she managed to begin studying the profession she always wanted to.

She considers herself a responsible, sensible, and committed person who's dedicated to the things that make her put passion into everything. She's a good mother and she always achieves what she sets out to.

She knows that with this help from Kiva she'll save money to be able to buy the materials required by her program so she can begin to practice her profession by giving massages in the home. It's a good way to begin to get experience and clients. When she achieves her dream of setting up her own spa she'll have the patients who will help her get ahead with her dream.

Finally, she wants to thank those who are giving an opportunity to all the people connected to this agreement between CampoAlto and Kiva. Many, many thanks for helping people like herself who have a lot of dreams and goals for improvement so they can give their families the quality of life they deserve.

Thanks a lot!
